This is NOT gonna last long….
Look for a Federal Judge to be asked to stay/stop this action….
This is Trump continuing to try to make the ‘caravan ‘ of Central Americans enroute to the US Southern Border a political weapon he can use in the media…
The Trump executive order is inopfryce for 90 days….
President Trump issued a proclamation Friday morning suspending “for a limited period” any immigrant who crosses the U.S. southern border illegally — disqualifying them from asylum due to the new rule established by Homeland Security and the Justice Department.
Between the lines: The proclamation is specifically targeted at the caravan of Central Americans currently making its way through Mexico. Trump claims in the proclamation that the suspension is in order to “channel these aliens to ports of entry” so that they can enter “in an orderly and controlled manner.” But this is likely to face serious legal challenges.
